Personal Injury

Perhaps one of the broadest categories of litigation, our attorneys have decades of experience in handling all types of personal injury claims.  Regardless of the origins of the case, from an automobile or maritime accident to a construction site or workplace injury to toxic tort claims, we will evaluate the case and take the most appropriate action to defend.  Some personal injury cases are just about damages, while others involve both liability and injuries issues. Some cases take less than a year to resolve, while others turn into bet-the-company litigation that take years to resolve. Whatever the situation, at Taunton, Snyder & Parish, clients work with partners who have comprehensive experience in resolving such disputes, and can use it to tailor a defense strategy developed to meet each client’s unique needs. To this end, we will pair the appropriate attorney with the specific needs of your case.

Our seasoned attorneys have served as first and second chairs in personal injury litigation in state and federal courts throughout Texas, in multiple jurisdictions nationwide, and often in venues favorable to plaintiffs. In every case, our attorneys utilize a combination of trial and negotiating skills and innovative defense strategies to advocate for our clients and protect their business objectives in each case. Outside of the courtroom, our administrative staff and attorneys utilize case management sophistication and technical knowledge.

For matters not yet in litigation, our attorneys are routinely engaged to investigate accidents in order to preserve evidence and counsel clients on potential exposure to liability. Such representation often includes handling post-accident proceedings initiated by administrative agencies, such as the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), the U.S. Chemical Safety Board (CSB), the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), the U.S. Coast Guard (USCG), and any state agency equivalents.
